Pushing screens to CIUS?

This document was generated from CDN thread

We currently have multiple applications that push commands and screens to Cisco phones. We accomplish this by doing an http post request to the ip address of the phone and including the Cisco XML object. An example of this would be displaying a broadcast message on the phone screen passing the CiscoIPPhoneText object.
I see in the documentation that "Cisco Cius does not support displayable XML objects". How would one accomplish a push to the Cius to display a screen? In our case, this cannot be something that the end user has to initiate in any way, and if at all possible not require a separate application installed and running on the Cius.

There are no built-in facilities for 'push' style triggering of a URL+browser.  I believe your basic concept - create a tiny service which runs on the device which just launches and then listens (or polls or long-polls) for an incoming socket message - would be the basic approach.  
There is the greater 'Android Cloud to Device Messaging Framework' ( but I don't think that is what you're looking for.

Talking more with the devs, it looks likely that there may indeed be a special mechanism to facilitate push-type operations in the near future.  Please stand by!
